Tomas Slavik took the Crankworx World Tour 2016 by storm, and while his name in Crankworx competition may have been relatively unfamiliar for newer fans of the sport, it was far from his beginning. He started racing at age six, first in BMX, then transitioning to a mountain bike at 16. In 2008 he made his way to Whistler to compete in his first Crankworx: “It was a completely new world to me…I had the best time of my life riding my bike at that time.” After a few podium finishes, he all but disappeared off the Crankworx scene, reappearing with a bang at Crankworx Rotorua 2016, taking the win in the Mons Royale Dual Speed & Style, asserting his speedy dominance and besting a field made up of some of the world’s best. With two other podium finishes, including top of the box in the Giant Dual Slalom at Crankworx Whistler (“when I crossed the finish line on a 1st race and I realised I might become King Of Crankworx by this win which was absolutely amazing feeling after such a hard season and so many races. Big relief!”), over the course of the season, he wrapped his season with one of the most hard-won prizes in mountain biking: the title of King of Crankworx for 2016.
